Revlon lip butters - Worth the hype?

(Raspberry pie above, macaroon below)

When I think about it now, these Revlon lip butters are the first products I have ever tried from Revlon. After hearing so much hype about the lip butters I ran out to Boots to get some except when I went they didnt have many colours in and no testers at all, so off home I went empty handed.

I was given the chance to try some this week and was so excited. I chose raspberry pie which is a gorgeous bright pink and macaroon which is a dark reddy pink on the lips. 

I am so impressed with the pigmentation of these lip butters. In all honesty I would say they are more lipstick/lipgloss/lipstain/lipbalm all in one. I applied raspberry pie this morning as soon as I received it. Since then I have eaten 2 meals, drank etc since I applied it and its still on my lips, not as vibrant as when I first applied it but it is still there.

I really love these, they are a great summer product as they aren't sticky at all and they only need to be applied once or twice a day. I now have candy apple, lollipop and sweet tart on my wishlist. They are completely worth the hype everyone has been giving them.

They retail for £7.99 but are currently on offer in boots for £5.99.

Will you be trying these?

  1. I have peach parfait..I like it for just every day wear

  2. I have the one in tutti frutti, the perfect summer shade I think x

  3. I love the shade Macaroon it's so nice for everyday xx

  4. Definitely will be trying these! I've tried the Loreal Rouge Caresses and I need to see if these are on par or better! xo

  5. I really like these and think they are the perfect low-maintenance daytime lip product. I don't find them to be particularly long-wearing, but nothing seems to be on me! But you're right, they are nice and pigmented and give lips a nice bright colour without the intensity of a full-on lipstick. So wearable. I've got Cherry Tart, but I really want to get Tutti Frutti and Sweet Tart as they look gorgeous.
